Bijay Anand as Janak in Siya Ke Ram
Bijay Anand as Janak in Siya Ke Ram 

Mumbai, November 06, 2015 (Akash Sharma): Actor Bijay Anand, turned to yoga as soon as he became popular from his blockbuster movie, Pyaar Toh Hona Hi Tha. He is now a full time yoga teacher and two decades after his stint in this industry he is back with a mythological show on Star Plus called Siya Ke Ram. 

Talking about this, he said, “It was not that I wasn't getting work at that time; it's just that I felt there was more to life than a mundane existence. I realized that becoming richer or getting more work was not all that I wanted. I was a very short tempered person and learning yoga really helped. In controlling my intolerance.”

While Bijay has his yoga school here and also travels abroad to train people, he is now returning to acting. He will play Maharaja Janak of Maithili (Sita’s father) in the TV show Siya Ke Ram. “I accepted the role because few people know about Janak other than him being Sita’s father. If you read the epic, you will find many of the teachings and values that Janak stood for, are applicable to people in their lives even today. I have been imparting these values in real life to my students too, so the role impressed me a lot and I accepted it. Janak was a compassionate king and I felt it would be great essaying this role. Since this show will explore the story from Sita’s point of view, I found it to be the right character to make a comeback.”
